Family Celebrations

Published July 31, 2019

I love talking to our customers and helping them plan their ideal fishing trip. Early this month, I had such a fun time chatting with Jeff LoGioco and helping him plan the ultimate 50th birthday celebration for his brother. As the plans emerged, their dad decided to join them. Now the three of them are coming to PEI later in August for a fantastic fishing trip with us.

After some chatting, the...

Drone Footage of Tuna Fight

Published September 4, 2018

We are having a terrific summer here at Wild Tuna Charters. There has been at least one fish hooked on every full day charter we’ve done this year. We were thrilled to have a group of helicopter pilots from New Zealand in August. It was especially exciting when Luke Wright brought out his drone. 
It was like the fish knew they were on camera – we could see from the boat the school of fish...

The Kyle Family

We had the pleasure of having the Kyle family fish with us this week. They were on PEI for a summer holiday and decided to try their hand at tuna fishing.

They were still talking about it when they got back home. I gave him the hook out that we caught the fish with as a memento and Chris sent me a text that said, "We loved it. Next time we...

Two fish in one day

Published August 25, 2018

You know the only thing better than catching and releasing a giant bluefin tuna? Catching and releasing two in one day!

We had a great time with our friends from New Brunswick. The sun was shining and the fish were biting. Check out this video of the fish swimming beside the boat before we released him to swim another day.

Amazing start to the season!

Published August 15, 2018

The Taub brothers and their sons came for a two day charter with us and what a time we had! The boys released five tuna in two days! They had lots of laughs, got caught up and slept really well each night!

We are thrilled that the fish are close to shore and plentiful to start the season. Check out this video of one of the releases.

Before tuna season we fish lobster

Published July 10, 2018

As much as we love tuna fishing (and we really, really do!), we also love lobster fishing.

The season here runs in May and June and our commercial lobster fishery represents much of our livelihood. It's a family tradition - when I was younger I fished for my dad for many years and then my dad fished with me for many years after I bought the fleet. In fact, this year we had three generations hel...

Saco Bay Tackle Fishing Seminar

Published March 17, 2017

I am so pleased to be invited to be the guest speaker at the upcoming Saco Bay Tackle fishing seminar on March 25, 2017. Preparing for this seminar got me thinking about the evolution of our fishing methods here in the southern Gulf.

Back in the 70s during the first heyday of the tuna fishery, the fish were caught trolling natural mackerel baits.

Then in the 90s, using pink plastic squid on ...

Another bucket list fulfilled!

Published August 23, 2015

Our 2015 tuna charter season has been quite busy so far, fishing out of scenic Souris, PEI. I've had the pleasure of meeting a great fisherman, Gavin, for a week of fishing.

Gavin is an experienced marlin fisherman in his home country of South Africa and wanted to experience the power of a giant bluefin tuna! We didn't disappoint him and he fulfilled his bucket list with lots of action, with hi...

Adventures with Scott

Published June 14, 2015

I start every season fishing lobster - this year we are having a good season and ran into some folks who wanted to experience a day on the water. So I invited them to come along. They are an interesting couple travelling across the country looking for authentic and local adventures.

One of my favourite things about lobster fishing is gorgeous sunrises, so I was happy when we had a gorgeous mor...
